Spider-Man: No Way Home star Andrew Garfield is down to face off against Tom Hardy’s Venom.

Ever since Spider-Man: No Way Home hit theaters last month, many audiences have found a newfound appreciation for Andrew Garfield. The Academy Award-nominee’s performance in the film has received universal praise, with some even expressing hopes that somehow, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 could see the light of day.

In a recent interview with Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Andrew Garfield opened up about the possibility of returning for more movies as Spider-Man, including a third standalone film of his own:

“In terms of moving forward with the character, I am definitely open to that. It would have to be something very unique, very special, and of service to the audience and the character. I think there’s something playful and unique and odd and unexpected to be done. I’m not sure it is, but if we can figure it out, that would be so much fun.” 

With renewed excitement surrounding Andrew Garfield’s portrayal of Spider-Man at fever pitch, some have even speculated that Tom Hardy’s Venom could face off against him. With that possibility brought up to him, all he had to say was this:

  “That’s a cool idea.”

In the mid-credits scene for Spider-Man: No Way Home, we see Tom Hardy’s Venom in the Marvel Cinematic Universe asking a bartender about what happened in the last five years. He is then transported back to his own universe, but leaves behind black symbiote. We can expect to see more of Tom Hardy’s Venom in the future, and whether or not that signifies a crossover with Spider-Man, whether it’d be Andrew Garfield or Tom Holland, would be an interesting thing to see.

Both Andrew Garfield and Tom Hardy appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Here is the synopsis:

“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Marvel’s No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, with Andrew Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Hardy.
